With its reptilian eyes, gaping maw and upswept body line, the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee bears little resemblance to the boxy but beloved icon that arguably started the whole SUV craze back in 1974. In fact, at first glance, it looks downright weird. But that's OK because once you get used to that lizard face (and you will) you'll also see that the new Cherokee can boulevard along city streets and billy-goat through rough terrain pretty much like the old one -- and a whole lot more comfortably, too. Cherokee's revival is a timely market move by Chrysler.

Police are looking into a possible connection between a Tuesday night drive-by shooting on the Baltimore Beltway and the shooting death in June of a state Department of General Services police officer, Baltimore County police said yesterday. One of the victims of the drive-by shooting, Karen Roulhac, 36, of Baltimore, might be related to Albert Jerome Roulhac, a state Department of General Services officer who was shot and killed outside a Parkville bar in June. County police said they are investigating a possible link because the victims had the same last name and similar addresses, but they said that they do not know whether the two were related.
